The fallout from the Baylor sex assault scandal is just beginning to happen. Shortly after Art Briles was fired Thursday morning, one of Baylor's high profile commits, 4-star tight end Kedrick James, decommitted from the Bears.
Due to the departure of Coach Briles, I'd like to open my recruiting and decommit from Baylor. Thank u Baylor staff esp Coach Lebby & Bedell— Kedrick James (@kedrickjames044) May 26, 2016
This is relevant to the Razorbacks because Richard Davenport is reporting the James is planning to visit Fayetteville at some point this summer. Apparently, his grandmother is Arkansas' Dr. Charlene Johnson-Carter, a middle level education professor at UA, and is related to Demani Carter, a walk-on fullback for the Hogs.
James is rated a 4-star tight end according to the composite rankings. He originally committed to Baylor last July and has visited Texas A&M a couple of times since then, so the Aggies will also presumably be in the picture. He also holds offers from Oklahoma, Texas, Michigan, Tennessee, Miami and others.
